Nuclear weapons are a staple element in science fiction novels. The phrase "atomic bomb" predates their existence, back to H. Wells' The World Set Free () when scientists had discovered that radioactive decay implied potentially limitless energy locked inside of atomic particles (Wells' atomic bombs were only as powerful as conventional explosives, but would continue exploding for days.

Eight sovereign states have publicly announced successful detonation of nuclear weapons. Five are considered to be nuclear-weapon states (NWS) under the terms of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).

In order of acquisition of nuclear weapons these are the United States, Russia (the successor state to the Soviet Union), the United Kingdom, France, and China.

Cyclin, also known as proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), is a nonhistone nuclear protein that is present throughout the cell cycle in proliferating cells, reaching its maximum during S phase. Use of PCNA to estimate tumor proliferation rate has value in predicting response to treatment in dogs undergoing radiation therapy for meningioma.

Abstract. International concern that South Africa may possess nuclear weapons derives from her possession of an unsafeguarded enrichment plant which can produce weapons-grade fissile material, her failure to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and evidence since that she may have been preparing for testing or may actually have tested a nuclear explosive device.
